"I don't know anybody in Melbourne but there's 30K friends here at TuDiabetes. I met maybe 1/2 dozen people with diabetes 1984-2008, when I started hanging around online and now have hung out with some of them IRL too."

Trying to find some friends with diabetes in Melbourne

I realized most "normal" people misunderstand or don't know anything about diabetic. As a type 1 diabetic, sometimes I just wanna make some friends who understand what I am suffering. But it seems like there is not much approaches to do this. (one reason might because I am not a native English speaker) I am now in Melbourne, Australia. If there is anyone know how to find a diabetes community or make some friend with diabetes here?See More

"That's interesting, I did NOT know diabetics often suffer from low Vit D levels. I guess that explains why my level is so low, I to am on 10,000 units twice a week. Do you know what the rationale behind this is?"

"The U.S. population at large is woefully deficient in Vitamin D. This is important for everyone, but especially for us because Vitamin D plays a role in carbohydrate metabolism. I am still struggling to get my Vitamin up to a normal level, and…"

Brian (bsc) replied to Mr.C's discussion 'Vitamin D - Prevention for T1?'
"It turns out, those of us with diabetes often suffer from low vitamin D. I have to take at least 6000 IUs/day in order to maintain normal levels. For a while I had to take 10,000 IUs/day. That is like 20 times the recommended daily allowance. But…"

"I always get nervous when I take care of it (I mean be strict on everything), but it is still out of "normal" range (90-120). My D nurse said I should keep my BG level higher as I am living by myself. I once felt upset and get my BG down…"
